Buy tea, or anything else, and get cash back!

So little time, so many teas

More than 40 countries grow tea, but China, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan produce 90% of the world's supply.

The discussion about tea begins in China, as it is the homeland of tea. Even the word "tea" is derived from the Chinese character "cha." China's tea spread to Japan in the 6th century, then was introduced to Europe and America in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Enough history...let's get some. I've posted some good sources of tea, both retail and wholesale, in the links section to the right.

If you ordered one from each, that'd be enough tea to keep you stimulated for months!!

Stay tuned for more joy of tea.
